Governance involves how policies, practices or procedures are established to guide the operation of the college. Participatory governance is a collaborative goal-setting and problem-solving process built on trust and communication that involves representatives from appropriate constituent groups who engage in open discussion and timely decision-making.
The Institutional Governance Online Repository (IGOR) provides timely access to meeting agendas, notes, rosters, templates and other governance documents. Please visit the IGOR website for the latest governance information and documents.
Leadership Group Representative Bodies
ARC Student Government promotes educational activities and retention programs on campus and advocates for student interests by investigating, writing, and passing legislation that addresses the needs and concerns of the students. Representatives are elected or appointed and may serve on campus and district committees.
The purpose of the Academic Senate is to provide the faculty body with its formal representative voice in its role in participatory governance. The Academic Senate makes recommendations and represents the ARC faculty members in "academic and professional matters" per Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations.
